How can I add the page number in LibreOffice so it appears from a specific page to another in the top right corner.

Do you mean you want to add page numbers, or are you meaning something more specific? – scouser73 Jun 15 '11 at 15:50
Yeah page numbers. the one that goes typically in the upper right corner to know in what page you are on. – Luis Alvarado Jun 15 '11 at 15:51
Like this? – chrisjlee Jun 15 '11 at 15:58
Yes Chris but I need for the numbering to start from a specific page. – Luis Alvarado Jun 15 '11 at 19:02
I wish someone would answer the question in intelligible English. What is "click into the first paragraph" supposed to mean? Clink where? Select? Select all? And what is "just to enable" supposed to mean? – scrumble Feb 22 at 17:31

Inserting a page number

1 - Select Insert

2 - Select Fields

3 - Select Page Number

This is from the LibreOffice documentation: Starting With A Defined Page Number

To Start With a Defined Page Number
